Setting the bar

Michels Canada combines experience with out-of-the-box thinking to set the bar for rapid performance, environmental protection and safety in storm and sanitary sewer tunnel construction. Michels has experience with a variety of tunneling techniques, including Earth Pressure Balance Tunnel Boring Machines, hard rock TBMs, conventional blast tunneling, sequential excavation methods and remote-controlled tunneling systems. Our comprehensive services include shaft construction, sliplining and pipejacking. We use a comprehensive pre-planning process to eliminate potential disruptions to schedules, existing services and surrounding residents.
